Lets Kick Out The Idiots Without A Budget
I get it. The two major American political parties disagree about how much money should be budgeted, how much should get cut, and where those cuts should be made. What I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t understand is why these politicians canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t manage to do their job in a timely manner. Their job is one of compromise, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get everything you want even if there are fundamental differences. No matter how diametrically opposed the two parties view points are there job is NOT to hold on to some rigid, unmoving, position. One of their key jobs is to pass a budget each year. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reasonable that compromises will be made and we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t expect both parties to agree 100% with the result.
So far they are 6 months late on passing a 2011 budget. Six Months. Can you imagine what your life would be like if your project was 6 months late because you couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get a long with a co-worker? I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know about you but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be fired. Alas, here we are with two parties engaging in partisan pandering hoping it will win them the next election the budget be damned. In these trying times itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s important to realize that while these politicians jobs may be to do things that help citizens their only real job is getting re-elected. I for one hope we kick out more incumbents next time around, institute term limits, or maybe both.
